No experience (Student)



Job Category

Computer science & software engineering


Are you looking for an internship in Embedded Software? Do you have a passion for high-tech systems and an interest in complex software design? Then this assignment could be interesting for you!

Job Mission

ASML is the market leader in developing photolithography systems for the semiconductor industry. A sophisticated sub-function inside this system is called “Machine Conditioning”, which provides a variety of conditioning flows and contamination control for the ASML machine, making sure that the system stays at the right temperature and free of particles.

Machine Conditioning contains large amounts of software to control various sensors and actuators. Before being applied to ASML machines, this software is qualified in several testing environments. These can be purely software, or contain (a subset) of the peripheral hardware.

There is an opportunity to develop a new simulator to mimic hardware communication and apply physical system behavior using a model-based approach.

Job Description

- Design a simulator to mimic a particular part of the Machine Conditioning sub-function;
- Implement the simulator application;
- Integrate this simulator in the qualification environment of the ASML software;
- Verify the simulated behavior with the actual response of the ASML system.


- You are a Bachelor student in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Embedded Systems or comparable.
- You have experience with Linux and Python
- You have a passion for high-tech systems and an interest in complex software design.
- You like to solve problems, are assertive and have good communication skills.
- You are self-driven, like to experiment and are willing to learn from your colleagues.
Nice to have:
- Experience with C, C++ and/or Matlab/Simulink
- Practice with version control systems (e.g. Git/SVN/ClearCase).
- Basic knowledge on Control Theory.

This is a Bachelor apprentice internship for 5 days a week with a duration of a minimum 5 months. The start date is as soon as possible.

Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.

ASML: Be part of progress
We make machines that make chips – the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems.

We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the applications to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.

We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do – not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard. At ASML we are always pushing technology further.

Students: Getting ready for the real-world
Teamwork is key within ASML. Our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong and worldwide we form one big team with over 25,000 employees. These colleagues have 123 different nationalities and work at our major sites on three continents.

Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule. In this inspiring environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country, or even working for a different company.

An internship at ASML is your opportunity to get to know this world and get a feel for that excites you most. Use your education, gain real-life working experience and explore the world of high-tech – all at the same time.
